This initiative is launched in the UK on a non-profit basis with the support of the Primary Care Society for Gastroenterology (PCSG).
Covid-19 forced the most vulnerable in our society to go into self-isolation, such as the 600.000 people living in the UK with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) of which Crohn’s and Colitis are most common.
To help manage their disease more effectively during the crisis, the digital coach from Nori Health is made available for free from their website (use access code UKFREE) with the support of the Primary Care Society for Gastroenterology and its Chair, Dr Kevin Barrett.
Nori Health is an 8-week supportive program with a conversational (chatbot) coach for people living with Crohn’s or Colitis. This is done through daily chat conversations with Nori across 100+ evidence-based topics proven to impact quality of life.
